Right to School – Shravan
Whenever anyone asks me which were the best and the worst moments in your life….
The answer always zeroes down to the same place….Yes, the best moments in my life were spent in my School….the worst moment in my life was when I had grown up so old…that I could no longer go to school….I know normally kids hate school…
They get all sorts of ailments and aches only on Monday’s when they have to go back to school after weekend holiday….But I was bit abnormal….I just hated holidays…. and could not wait to go back to school….School was like my first home…..my teachers and friends my family!!!!
I still remember the first day in school….It’s usual tradition that kids cry a lot on getting separated from their parents….But my class was bit different….I really don’t remember anyone of us crying….Because there was little slide in the corner of our L.K.G class…..So on entering the classroom, instead of crying we would all get busy with taking turns on the slide….Those were some careless days….No worries…Learning the alphabet and numbers was no big deal….Although the best part was shouting our lungs out while reciting the rhymes, to volumes all tuned up (So that we could offend the teacher so much that for the rest of day she would just leave us in peace)….Personally my favorite time was always spent in little sand garden that we had opposite to our canteen….The garden had slides, merry-go-round and other play stuffs….Every day after-school time was allotted to this garden….The most funny part was to push the person sitting in front of you from the slide….So that they would land head on straight into the sands (We were kids right?)
Seriously we were the naughtiest batch in the entire school….and we were actually proud of it!!!….I still remember all that fun….Sneaking around the corridors….playing in the rains and watching our play ground turn into swimming pool and stealing mangoes from the Mango Tree in our school garden….We did it all….
